As Canada’s ELD mandate takes effect, compliance is impossible
What if a federal regulation was passed, and no one complied? That’s the awkward situation the industry finds itself in, with the Canadian electronic logging device (ELD) mandate that took effect June 12.
Canada’s ELD mandate requires carriers to use a third-party-certified ELD, a list of which will be posted to Transport Canada’s website. However, no devices have been approved to date. That doesn’t mean the regulation is being postponed. It just means there will initially be no way to comply.
